for $10 million ahead of what it called america's birth certificate. the math that gave america its name. that $10 million was the most the library had ever spent on anything. it was also almost $2 million more than had recently been paid for an original copy of the declaration of independence, and that kind of caught my attention. i never heard of the map or had seen the map but the library seemed to think it was the most valuable piece and the market even seemed to think it was more than an original copy of the declaration of independence. so, i wanted to find out more and at this point i was thinking maybe i would do an article, short piece for the alana tech. so i did some research and got the basics of the story pretty quickly. early in the 1500's in the eastern part of france in the mountains there was a small group of scholars among them the mapmaker martin and he had come across letters and at least one early sailors chart showing the coastlines of the new world and they decided that what they were reading about and see on the charts was not a part of asia as most people had assu

. >>> tomorrow night in "obama: the world" we'll look at how america's first african-american president is dealing with the continent of africa. >>> finally tonight we take you to the middle east where á conflict is routinely part of the narrative.8 as you're about to see, that's true even of the most inconsequential stories. case in point, what's going on these days in abu ghosh, an ancient, mostly arab christian village in israel, less than ten miles from jerusalem. there the raging debate's not about the israel/palestinian conflict or iran, but chickpeas. specifically, who invented hummus, and who can produce the biggest batch of it. our report is by ben knight of abc australia. >> reporter: it's not that spicy. it's not that salty. in fact, almost doesn't really have much flavor at all. so why would anyone get this excited about making more than  four tons of chickpea dip? anywhere else in the world, they probably wouldn't. here in the middle east, hummus is a big deal. >> the hummus is in a way our national food. i can't call it delicacy, but it's for sure we can donate it to isr
